The house, built in 1907, is a two-thirds scale replica of American poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's in Cambridge, Mass. The home was originally part of Jones' private 4.6-acre botanical garden and zoological park near Minnehaha Falls. The Longfellow House Hospitality Center provides information about Minnehaha Falls and Minneapolis Grand Rounds, a recreation loop which includes Minnehaha Falls.
